Law of the Sea and marine affairs

Marine affairs and LawFNI has a long tradition of research on the Law of the Sea and marine affairs. A key concern today is the competing uses of marine spaces and the role of international and national regulation, especially maritime jurisdiction, in securing sustainable development of marine areas and resources.

In this wider context, the focus of FNI's study is two-fold, related to two major marine activities: Navigation and fishing. Regarding navigation, FNI's current projects analyse marine pollution and ballast water issues as well as maritime safety and environmental protection instruments prompted by the development and changing patterns of maritime transport, including those related to maritime oil export routes in Eurasia. As to the other marine activity, fishing, FNI's projects study international management of fisheries (including whaling), especially jurisdictional, environmental and international trade issues related to illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fishing.

FNI's special regional competence includes the Barents Sea, the Norwegian and North Sea area and the Southern Ocean, as well as the Mediterranean and, in particular, the Adriatic Sea issues.
